Winter Meetings have come and gone and it’s still quiet in San Francisco. Sure there has been a lot of hot rumors going around, but Sabean hasn’t pulled the trigger yet. The Uggla rumors is still as hot as ever. The last I heard was the Marlins want Jonathan Sanchez, Clayton Tanner and a mid-level pitching prospect.

I also heard that the Giants organization is doing well financially. Which means they can decide to take a little pay cut and sign a big player to keep the Giants fans happy. You will want to read my thoughts on this. I explain the difference between the Giants and Yankees. To read the rest of this rumor and my reactions to it click here.

Lets Go Giants – Clap, Clap!

It’s been a while since I have blogged. I have just been way to busy to do anything. I have still been talking and watching baseball. I don’t miss any games. If I can’t watch them. I’m listening or watching play by play on my phone. No I don’t have an Iphone, so I can’t get the games live on my phone. lol I can only see the pitch by pitch. lol

 

This season for the Giants has been magical. No matter how it ends. It will go down as a great/exciting year. I really loved the trade to get Freddy Sanchez even though he’s only played 13 games with us so far. This guy is a great player and his bat will be nice in our everyday lineup. I liked the Garko deal too, but he just hasn’t got hot yet. He did have one good game in Colorado where he hit 2 homeruns. Right now as I’m writing this blog. Brad Penny is making his first start as a Giant. I also like this pick up. Were basicly picking him up for nothing and he’s our #5 starter. That’s a great #5 starter cause I think he’s way better then a #5 starter. He’s going to be fine now that he’s back in the NL West. He’s not facing the Yankees over here.

 

The Giants have called up Buster Posey today after saying they were not going to bring him up this year. This is very exciting for Giants fans. He’s our future catcher and we know he’s got some game in him. He’s getting his chance to audition for the Giants, so they can decide to bring Bengie back next season or not. I’m sure Bengie is all of a sudden going to be able to play. Which is what I just heard. He said he’s going to be able to start tomorrow. I’m sure we will be seeing a Posey start soon too.

 

If you were to ask me at the beging of the season if I would be happy with the Giants record right now. I would have said hellllll yeah!!!!! Well now I want more wins (I’m greedy like that). I want them to make the playoffs and their behind the Rockies by 1 game. I think they can win the wild card spot with the pitching they have, but they just need to get some offense going.

Double Header With Nats – Giants/Braves Trigger Finger

Good news Giants fans. The Giants didn’t lose on the road last night. Well they actually didn’t even play. They waited over 3 hrs at the field to see if they can get the game in, but Mother Nature had other plans. Which means Randy Johnson has to wait another day to go for win #300. Johnson will take the mound today if the rain clears up. He will be pitching game 1 of the double header. Game 1 will be at 1:30pm pacific time. Game 2 will follow that with Matt Cain on the mound.
 
The Giants have been pretty much hopeless on the road. They have the 2nd best home record in the National League, but can’t seem to win on the road to save their lives. We probably have had the easiest road games possible to win so far this year, and we can’t even take advantage of that. I’m sure a lot of people don’t know this, but the Giants actually have the 2nd best home record in the National League. We are 2nd to the hated Dodgers!
 
Thoughts about Glavine/Braves and Giants non moves.
 
In recent news I’m sure that everyone has heard about Glavine getting released by the Braves. This is a guy that will be in the Hall of Fame for sure. This guy has had so many big games for the Braves. Do you think it was right that they released him? Well that all depends on how you look at the situation. The Braves look at it like a business. They want to win and will release a player like Glavine if they think they have someone better to fill his spot. They even went out and made a trade to get Nate McLouth. Now lets step back and look at the Giants. The Giants have a tough time in even thinking about releasing Rich Aurilia. He’s still on the team with a .200 Avg. He did actually get hot to get his Avg. up to .200 and he did hit his first home run last week. Giants can’t even release a fallen star when the Braves can release a future Hall of Famer. The Giants are just dangling Jonathan Sanchez and the Braves are out there making trades. Just shows you which team wants to win and pull the trigger on moves and which team just wants to dangle a player.

Please Help My Giants!

Giants still aren’t scoring runs. Zito pitched a good game last night. Zito gave up two solo home runs but that was it. He pitched a complete game and got the loss. Padres won by the score of 2-1. The Giants are trying to shake up the batting order today. They have Aaron Rowand batting leadoff. This will be the first time he’s done that in a Giants uniform. I’m all for trying anything and everything right now. This team has some good and bad games with the bats. Most of the time they are really trying hard to get a run across. Brian Sabean is going to have to really think about what arm in the Giants system is he ready to part with to get a good bat in the line up. Just hope he doesn’t panic and get rid of one of our great arms for an okay bat. If you make a move with our good pitchers. He better get a really good bat in return. I know this isn’t a regular blog for me. I’m just kind of venting right now. =) I will write a blog tomorrow about tonight’s outcome. Go Giants!

Redemption vs. Padres?

The Giants play a short 2 game series with the Padres. I’m sure the Giants would love to get a little redemption since they Padres swept them in San Diego. It won’t be an easy task for the Giants. The Padres send Peavy to the mound tonight against Cain. Then tomorrow the Padres send Young against Zito. Cain should be able to make a good pitching match up tonight against Peavy. The big question is if the Giants can score any runs. Game 2 has Zito on the mound so I’m sure most Giants fans are chalking that up as a loss. I guess were just going for the split. lol I’m sure Zito will be fine. It’s just everyone expects him to fail since he hasn’t really shown anything in a Giants uniform.
 
Giants have been shuffling their lineup around trying to shake things up. Burriss and Ishikawa have been in a slump since the season started. Pablo Sandoval hasn’t hit like he can, but he does have games here and there where you can tell he can hit. I think he’s out of his slump and you should see the ball jumping off his bat. 
 
Tonight I will be switching back and forth from the Giants and Sharks games. It’s a must win for the Sharks tonight since they have dropped the first 2 games. I love when I can flip back from different games. It’s going to be a nice night. Go Giants and Go Sharks!
